Disability records are confidential, maintained in the ADS office and are protected as an educational record under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).  Disability-related information may be disclosed on a limited, need-to-know basis in order to provide accommodations and services with the permission of the student or as otherwise permitted under the University’s student records policy. 

Submitting this application is only part of the registration process.  Appropriate disability documentation supporting the requested accommodations/services should also be submitted to ADS.  The documentation provided will be reviewed as a part of a collaborative process with the student. A personal interview with an ADS specialist will be scheduled so that there is an opportunity to discuss disability-related concerns, needs and requests. During a personal interview, consideration will also be given to the student’s self-report, strengths, and needs previous academic experiences and ideas regarding accommodations. 

Accommodations received at another institution are not binding to Towson University. ADS may propose an alternative accommodation that would be appropriate but has not been recommended in the past or the student has not received.
